Getting Married in the Berkshires: Winbrooke Wedding Venue Feature

Last month, our team toured some of the top wedding venues in the Berkshires. As experienced wedding planners who have visited numerous venues, Winbrooke truly stood out with its breathtaking views and delightful interiors. This venue, which has been in the Felix family since the 1980s, holds a special place as Nick’s (the current owner) childhood home. Through careful renovations, they have transformed it into a stunning wedding destination. Today, we are excited to share some key insights if you are planning a wedding in the Berkshires and considering the remarkable Winbrooke as your venue of choice!

Then, the Terrace Lawn offers an idyllic setting for your wedding ceremony, providing a picturesque backdrop to exchange your heartfelt vows. Bask in the incredible views of Tyringham Cobble while surrounded by ample space, creating a truly unforgettable experience. To be prepared for any unforeseen weather conditions in the Berkshires, it is recommended to rent a tent as a backup plan. And yes – you can bring your dog to the ceremony!

Their Home Library Converted into a Charming Bar

While this home has only been in the Felix family since the 1980’s, it was originally built in 1905 so the classic architecture and charm are in abundance. One of our favorite details as we toured the property however was the bar! It was originally the home library and the wood shelves are all original to the home.
